March, 30, 1995 - Transvaal, South Africa

When a local farmer from Groot Marico in the western Transvaal plains region first observed the saucer-shaped object on Thursday morning, he noticed that it had a distinctly visible hole in its hull.

However, his arrival probably prompted the "vehicle's" hasty retreat and rapid ascent into the sky.  View full report
